DRDO, Ficci to Join Hands for Tech Assessment
The Times of India, 24 February, 2009

Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO), the R&D arm of the defence ministry, in partnership with industry chamber Ficci has initiated a technology assessment and commercialization (ATAC) programme for assessment of DRDO-developed technologies for commercial markets.

Ficci has been successfully running the technology commercialization programme under India Innovation Growth Programme. The Institute of Texas University at Austin provides technical help to FICCI in assessment of technologies through its patented process that enabled NASA to successfully commercialize its technologies for commercial markets.

The DRDO-Ficci programme aims to create a commercial pathway to deliver DRDO-developed technologies for use in civilian products and services.

In the first year of the programme, 26 DRDO labs across India have participated and over 200 technologies are being assessed. The technologies being assessed are from sectors as diverse as electronics, robotics, advanced computing and simulation, avionics, optronics, precision engineering, engineering systems, instrumentation, acoustic technologies, life sciences, disaster management technologies and information systems.
